Flirting: it seems so harmless and fun, doesn’t it? At least, it seems harmless when you’re the one laughing and joking with other people.

I think that flirting is cheating if you are in a committed relationship.
have you ever flirted with another guy or girl when in a relationship? Nope. I find it to be cheating.
what’s the furthest you’ve gone when flirting with another girl or guy? I have never done it. My fiance makes me happy, I don’t need to flirt.
what do you think crosses the line when flirting with others? If you wouldn’t do it with your boyfriend/girlfriend standing next to you then you are cheating on them.
have you told your significant other about flirting that you have done? Have no reason too.
Some people will disagree with me but, I have a very strict opinion on cheating. Like I stated above. If I wouldn’t do it with my fiance standing right next to me then it’s cheating.
hem replied, saying:
have you ever flirted with another guy or girl when in a relationship? i am naturally just a really flirtatious person. i’m very smiley and giggly when i speak to anyone, and boys often interpret it as me flirting with them. i do MILDLY flirt with boys sometimes, but nothing even remotely serious.
what’s the furthest you’ve gone when flirting with another girl or guy? a few years ago i made a mistake of getting a little physical with a boy i was flirting with, while i was in a relationship. nothing really sexual, but we did kiss a little.
what do you think crosses the line when flirting with others? any touching, or any talk about anything sexual.
have you told your significant other about flirting that you have done? not in the sense that i’m like “OH HEY HONEY SO I WAS TOTALLY HITTING ON THIS GUY TODAY”, but he knows that i’m a flirty girl and most men i speak to find me pretty alluring. it doesn’t seem to bother him, in fact he enjoys it.
Here’s what we think: flirting is totally natural. It happens sometimes when you don’t even realize you’re doing it, and sometimes it’s just the way people communicate with each other. So do we think flirting could be considered cheating? No, as long as it’s innocent.
We’re not saying that you should go out and get your flirt on with everyone who walks by you. And you shouldn’t have one person on the side who you flirt with every day. But if you once in a while find yourself flirting with someone other than your sweetie, it shouldn’t be the end of your relationship, and vice versa. Basically, if it would hurt you if your sweetie did it, then you shouldn’t do it. But we say that innocent and occasional flirting isn’t too big of a deal.
